Ted Klaudt, a former GOP legislator in South Dakota, has been charged with eight counts of second-degree rape, one count of sexual contact with a child younger than sixteen,two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, two counts of witness tampering for saying to one of his victims that he would send her to juvenile detention if she did not recant the rape accusations, and one count of stalking.

Klaudt molested his victims by saying that the girls could make $20,000 as egg donors and that he was ascertaining their eligibility by sexually abusing them with fondling and using speculums to invade their bodies.

Ted Klaudt was an anti-abortion, anti- gay Republican who promoted legislation to toughen laws against sex offenders. Several of Klaudt's victims were his foster children.

Now, is it me or are there more sexual perverts on the political right than on the political left? Let's take a walk down (recent) memory lane: Mark Foley, the Republican senator from Florida, who harassed underage aides with sexual explicit e-mails,Craig Schelske a former candidate for Congress whose marriage ended among allegations of adultery and exposing his children to pornography,Cary Lee Cramer who molested a little girl that he used in an anti-John Kerry ad,Phil Giordano former Mayor of Waterbury Connecticut sentenced to 37 years for child sexual abuse...if I missed anyone it is not through lack of material.
